Book Review for Under the Palms by Kaira Rouda

 The Kingsleys #2

Under the Palms by Kaira Rouda

Published May 21, 2024 by Thomas & Mercer

Genre:  Mystery Thriller



Taken from Goodreads:
  During a weekend retreat, a powerful family plays a dangerous game of dark secrets and cold-blooded ambition in a novel by Kaira Rouda, USA Today bestselling author of Beneath the Surface.


Under the direction of the Kingsleys’ new president, Paige, the family has gathered for a weekend retreat at a luxurious Laguna Beach resort.

Still clinging to the hope of succession are the sons of Richard Kingsley, the family patriarch and John, the oldest, who’s clawed his way back from a dark tragedy, and Paige’s estranged husband, Ted, the golden boy. When Richard’s ex and his wayward daughter join the fray, Paige finds herself with two fast allies. They know a secret that could shatter the family legacy. Call it leverage, call it revenge, the Kingsley women believe they have the upper hand.

But as the power games begin, greater threats than the howling Santa Ana winds are coming. Because this weekend, amid so much greed and betrayal, no Kingsley is safe. It’s family. Watch your back.

 

My Thoughts:  I devoured this book on a cold and rainy day.   It was wonderful and kept me entertained from the first page to the very last page.   I loved the setting of the 5 star hotel with all the “rich” features.   The exclusiveness of the hotel showed just how powerful the Kingsley Family really is.

I have to talk about the characters.   They were something else.   Every one of them had a holy than thou attitude and it was fun to figure out who was holier than the rest.   Who was bad person, who was set up, who was going to be in the CEO?    There is so much back stabbing and betrayal that I had no idea who the good and the bad were.  

Kaira Rouda is an amazing author.  Her thriller, suspense, and mystery writing skills make her a must-read author.   I recommend checking out Under the Palms.  

Thank you Thomas & Mercer for a copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Release Blitz for The Problem with Players by Brittainy Cherry

 


The Problem with Players by Brittainy Cherry is now live! 


As a female coach, I've always lived by a simple mantra: throw hard, swing for the fences, and never, ever look back—especially when it comes to past flames.

So when my ex-boyfriend somehow manages to land the job as my new assistant coach, my life is flipped upside down. The game I thought I'd mastered is now being played with a whole new set of rules.

My ex is baseball's all-star Nathan Pierce. He's tall, dark, and undeniably handsome. He's also all too eager to spend extra hours working together while flashing that familiar devilish smirk of his that still sends my heart racing.

Between playful teasing and lingering stares I discover that Nathan isn't just here to work. He's here to rewrite history. Our history.

And when fate throws another curveball that involves me needing a place to stay, Nathan offers me his spare bedroom which sends me spiraling into emotions I believed had long since faded.

Now I'm faced with the ultimate decision: keep it professional and continue fleeing from our past, or confront it head-on by playing the game he thinks we were meant to finish together.
